Apparently I did a sh$tty job of picking out cards to send. I just saw the user I sent to had them for sale in BST the day after Christmas. What a disappointment. I thought I did pretty decent picking them out.

Thats ok...you tried...

On another forum, I sent a few cards to a secret santa, he never posted what he got, however, I did see another member post and his secret santa gift was my cards + 1 more he sent along...guess mine weren't that great in his eyes either

Dude, that is weak. Some folks lack the appreciation gene it seems. Sorry to read that someone would take a gift and sell it out in the open where you could see them. You should offer to buy them and then let him know you were his secret Santa.

Sorry for the delay in posting pics. My Secret Santa knocked it out of the park! I was super excited to see a large package, and this is what it had in it. First a small envelope with:

#/10

And then the big part. Wow, is all I can say:



30+ Signatures from the 2008 Team including Clay Matthews, amongst many others!!!!
Thank you Santa!!!!!!

Agree, that is cool. To owner - does it have any type of COA with it?

Scanner bit the dust, so iPhone photos will have to do.

Got this first:



Skittles! Just what my kids wanted! Thanks Santa!

Next, up, a blaster of 2011 Chrome Football! COOL!



Nothing major, highlight: Jake Locker and Andy Dalton RC's. Fun rip nonetheless!

Finale:

1997 UD Legends Joe Theisman Auto! NICE! One of my favorite sets of all time. THANKS!!




Santa wrote a pretty convincing card saying more was on the way, but seriously, don't worry about it. I appreciate the nice package!

Thanks again Santa!

Yeah, it comes with a COA from "Gregory Grierson", and also a CD-ROM with pics of all the players signing the ball. Pretty cool stuff! It's awesome in-person!

Default My Secret Santa hit it out of the Park

Sorry took so long but here are the goods minus some pc Dolphins cards. My SS knocked it out of the park. I especially love the Flynn/Johnson dual auto. Thanks again SS who ever you are.
